Starting on Wednesday and continuing through the week, there will also be recaps of past European Championships dating as far back as 1972, when West Germany triumphed.

Additionally, there will be a whole bank of LaLiga content ranging from top past matches to interviews, the “Clasico” movie and “The Matadors of LaLiga” featuring Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

For rugby viewers, “Blue Reign”, premiering on March 24, will delve into the Blue Bulls’ wonder years, while the Springboks will feature in “Against the Odds”.
